This summer The Steam Industry is again putting on a free theatre season in The Scoop next to City Hall. One of this year's productions is an adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island.
The young Jim Hawkins, played by Andrew Venning, is in a heap of excitement when he secretly finds the way to treasure hidden by pirates. Jim sets off along with a robust, headstrong Lady Jacqueline Tralawny, played by Bea Holland, and a gang of capable sailors, that turn out to have some conspiring pirates among rank. When Long John Silver, the most horrible pirate known, played by Stewart Alexander, comes along to find the treasure Jim finds himself in a terrifying trap.
Whether you know the story by heart or are learning it for the first time come to the Scoop for an evening of fun for all. Treasure Island is packed with song, comedy, fantastic costumes, and skillful acting! It even has dancing mice!
The perfect event for summer is waiting for you at The Scoop. So don't miss out!
